By comparing two models, CLEX researchers found that the current generation of convection parameterisations fail to replicate the random, chaotic nature of real-life turbulent convection.
World-first modelling research– which used several million CPU hours in Australia’s fastest supercomputer, Raijin, and ran calculations non-stop for over a year – has revealed the Southern Ocean mixes water between the depths and surface far more easily than previously thought.
